Yesterday we sent an email to all addresses in the FHA directory, 1,810 in total. 60 of these were rejected. A few had invalid email addresses because their owners had changed their addresses. But most were rejected because the receiving email host believed the emails to be spam. The email hosting companies included AOL, Yahoo, Hotmail, Outlook and a few others.
If you did not receive an email with links to the FHA Newsletter yesterday, you should add the following email to your Contacts List: firstname.lastname@example.org .

Doing so increases the frequency of undeliverable email to all who need and value the information sent by the FHA in these unsettled times.

Information about Sun Trust Bank in Fearrington
Other local impacts of COVID-19
When many of us moved to Fearrington, the Handbook and Directory gave us the essential information, but slowly other questions emerged. Why do I pay dues to two organizations? What does the Fearrington Homeowners Association (FHA) do and who belongs to it? How does it fit in with the service groups shown on the website, and what exactly is a service group? What role, if any, does Fitch Creations still have in management of the overall development? How close to “finished” is Fearrington? Here are some of the answers you may have been looking for.
